XPlanet Configurator - Set up XPlanet easily
FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
At the moment for Windows only.
Every time you save or run a configuration the Configurator
generates two files. Provided your configuration is named
"Changed" these two files are generated:
"./Changed.cmd" in the directory of xplanet.jar and
"./config/Changed" in the config directory
Under Windows double click on "./Changed.cmd".
Two windows will open: one that starts XPlanet itself and
one that starts the Downloader. XPlanet will use the command
line parameters that are configured in "./Changed.cmd".
One of those parameters is "-config Changed". It tells
XPlanet to use the config file "./config/Changed".
Alternatively you can open the command line and change to the directory
of "./Changed.cmd". Do this if nothing happens if you
double click on "./Changed.cmd". The command line will
tell you what is getting wrong.
Take care you are not working with a configuration that has the
same name as one of the example configurations. This behaviour
is wanted. Why? XPlanet has a lot of parameters and configurations.
In the "Expert Mode" you can modify almost all of them.
In the Non-"Expert Mode" you will see only a small portion
of all the features. You will probably end up producing a result
that you can't understand from what you see in the Non-"Expert Mode".
What to do if you want to switch between Non-"Expert Mode" and
"Expert Mode" without loosing settings from the "Expert Mode"?
Choose an example from the list in the Non-"Expert Mode" and modify
something. You will see a new entry in the list named "Changed".
"Save" or "Run" XPlanet. Than you can change to
the "Expert Mode" modify something and switch back without
loosing your settings.
